This booklet describes a school district's evolution from a neatly compartmentalized language arts curriculum to a curriculum integrated around broad topics and themes of study. Sections of the booklet discuss the mounting tensions in the school district's language arts program; committee work that formed the foundation for change; the 5 target behaviors or skills which form the "spine" of the language arts program; the need for defining some priorities for thematic studies; teacher support; the "critical moments" during the evolution of the curriculum to thematic studies; and what the future holds. Throughout the booklet, set off in italic print, are the researcher's current reflections about school change. An appendix provides a list of trade books (one for each of the grades K-6) on the topics of personal feelings and growth; friends and family; social issues and culture; imagination, thought, and humor; folklore, heroes, and legends; yesterday; my world and others; environment; and living things.
